Admissions officers from colleges and universities, national and international, visit Presentation in the fall semester, before school, at lunch and occasionally after school. Attending these brief meetings is a valuable part of the college process in a number of ways: to learn about the specific college, to meet the representative who will be reading Presentation students’ applications and to ask any specific questions that are not readily available on the college website. The list of colleges that are coming to campus is on Naviance and appear in the daily bulletin and the weekly Panther Report.
The College Counselors hold workshops in the fall semester on different parts of the college process. The first meeting is mandatory, assigned by mentor group, and occurs during collaboration.
An overview of the process as well as specific application, financial aid and scholarship information is presented as well as the tasks and deadlines that are specific to our process at Presentation. There is an Essay Writing Workshop offered after school, as well as several drop in essay workshops.
Workshop Wednesday is a morning dedicated to application completion for the Common App, the UC application and the CSU application.
